Sun Country Airlines has announced the release of a new inflight menu serving more than just the Midwest hospitality they’re known for. Tapping into Minnesota-based Caribou Coffee, Fulton Brewing and smalltown favorite, Dot’s Pretzels, the airline hopes to share more Minnesota and Midwest flavor from coast to coast.

In addition, Sun Country plans to invite passengers to sit back in their comfortable reclining seats with their beverage and snack in hand and enjoy 15 new, complimentary Minnesotathemed movies like “Purple Rain,” “The Mighty Ducks,” “Grumpy Old Men,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Juno,” and more.

As part of this announcement, the airline names Caribou Coffee the Official Coffee of Sun Country Airlines. The partnership includes a $250,000 investment by Sun Country in equipment upgrades onboard to ensure high flavor quality and consistency across its fleet for passengers to enjoy. In addition to Caribou Coffee ready-to-drink Cold Brew cans that are currently available for purchase, Sun Country will begin offering complimentary fresh brewed hot Caribou Coffee on all flights in early 2022. You betcha heard that right.

Dot’s Pretzels, a beloved family-owned small business, will now be available onboard your next Sun Country Airlines flight. Passengers who purchase tickets in Sun Country’s “best seats,” will receive a complimentary bag of Dot’s Pretzels. Additional bags will be available for purchase onboard.

Beginning this month, Sun Country Airlines will offer an additional craft beer option from Minnesota-based Fulton Brewing, adding Fulton Sweet Child of Vine IPA to the list of brews available for purchase onboard. Passengers also have the option of purchasing Fulton Lonely Blonde, which was originally brought onboard in 2019.

What’s pairs better than beer and a pretzel? Travelers can take advantage of the “Hometown Flavor Bundle” and save $1 when they purchase any snack along with a Minnesota beer or liquor. Sun Country Airlines also offers Minnesota-based Prairie Organic Gin and Vodka on its inflight menu.

These products are now available onboard any of Sun Country’s more than 95 routes across 65 airports in the United States, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
